This was such a hit at a recent party that not only did I have to give out the recipe to people who had tasted it at the party, but got a call for the recipe from someone who wasn't there but heard about it the next day. I used sliced almonds instead of peanuts and cut the sugar in the dressing in half. If you make it ahead, add the cranberries when you dress the salad and add the bacon and nuts, or they will stain the other veggies. Fabulous recipe!
Reminded me too much of a broccli salad i made once
Wow!! I brought this salad to a family barbecue and they absolutely devoured it! The bowl was empty in minutes and I doubled the recipe. Our family loves salads and we make a lot of different ones but this was by far one of, if not the best. I must admit I was a bit skeptical when I read the ingredients wondering how this salad was going to go together, but desperate to try something new, and I'm so glad I did. A definate keeper!
YUM!! This is so good. I did substitue dried cherries for the cranberries, and almonds for the peanuts, but followed the rest. So good. Thanks Pamela for a new potluck dish.
Even my picky 16 yr old liked this one! The only change I have come to make is to use regular peanuts instead of Spanish peanuts, & I add a very small amount of pine nuts & sliced almonds to give a more crunchy taste. This salad is not just good but down right incredibile.
This is a great salad. I have been making it for about four years. Everyone always asks for the recipe. A great way to get you kids to eat their vegetables.
YUM! What a wonderful recipe this is. I was a little apprehensive on the raw peanuts but I think that is a must. This recipe can be made a couple days ahead of time and it still is great. I love recipes that can be prepared ahead of time and still taste great. I will be making this again this week for our reunion.
Made this salad for my finicky sisters,they raved about it! The cranberries are a nice touch.
